AMETEK Announces Completion of Hermetic Connector Production Expansion

Friday, February 14, 2020

Cincinnati, OH -- AMETEK, a leading manufacturer of high-performance hermetic connectors, has announced the completion of a significant manufacturing capacity expansion, reducing lead time by 35% for products which have been in short supply for over a year. Facilities, equipment, and personnel at their Ohio and California sites have been increased.

AMETEK hermetic connectors are sold under the Sealtron and Hermetic Seal brands.  These high performance, ruggedized connectors are used in demanding and reliability sensitive applications such as aerospace, defense, energy exploration, and medical devices.  Increasing worldwide demand for AMETEK’s highest performing connectors led to the decision to invest in significant upgrades to manufacturing facilities, equipment, and skilled technical production staff.

 “We invested in the equipment and people necessary to support increasing industry requirements,” commented Liam Shanahan, Business Unit Vice President for AMETEK’s Sealtron and Hermetic Seal units. “Demand for our high-performance hermetic connectors has been rising, and we responded to the increased customer needs.”

“There are only a few companies in the world that can meet the most advanced technical challenges of our customers,” added Tim McCoy, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for AMETEK Sealtron and Hermetic Seal.  “Expanding capacity at these two factories has allowed us to reduce lead time to about half of what our key competitors are capable of.”
